"With books, I am promiscuous."

- Heather Sellers, Page After Page, Chapter 6: Sleeping With Books

I must check out Heather Sellers. She has a way with words. I love her comment you left on my blog: "One reason I became a writer instead of a visual artist is because a tube of cerulean blue cost $4.39." from Heather Sellers, Page After Page, Chapter 4: Tools 101"
 
She has an easy writing style and I really, really like chapter 6, Sleeping with Books best. Being a bibliophile I relate wholeheartedly too it.

Here are two more quotes I captured from Chapter 6 (and that is all because I don't have the book in the office - though, I do have some captured quotes):

"Writer's thrive on a diet of poetry, essays, novels, reference books, literary magazines. There's a whole food pyramid out there!"

"I bathe with books and they bloom, like peonies."
 
"Writer's thrive on a diet of poetry, essays, novels, reference books, literary magazines. There's a whole food pyramid out there!"

She left out blogs ;-)
 
I love the quotes you've given here. Words are certainly free! Just have to think them and arrange them on the page.

Was she meaning any particular order in that pyramid? What was at the base? Apex?
 
Oh, I love this quote!!
 
actually, i agree with this. hehehehe ;p
 
blog hoppin`...nice site I did enjoyed my visit. check my houses if u have time. TC
 
lol...never read her stuff but that line actually made me smile. ;)
 
I need that on a T-shirt.
 
Great quotation Richard - yea, words are really free and it shows also in the blogsphere:-)
 
*Raises hand* Another guilty person here. ;)
 
MOI: She did not elaborate any further on the food pyramid. Definitely a project for you to prepare for the kids if you are headed back into the classroom.

breal: It is a great quote.

tin-tin: Good for you.

gwapasila: thank you for dropping by and leaving a comment.

cavalock: aside from Page After Page I haven’t either. I may read her book Chapter After Chapter. Both these books are about writing.

beth: don't we all?

rennyba: thanks rennyba.

coffee fairy: we all have guilty pleasures we indulge in.
